Subject: Here you go.
Interesting film that must've been made 10 seconds after the Bikini Atoll tests (because at the end of the film they were 'going over the results' of it). But really, this film is all about planes! planes! planes! Big ones! Small Ones! Planes that land! Planes that drop! All of this is very entertaining done (especially the montage in the first couple of minutes), The 2nd half of the film does mainly focus on the Bikini Atoll testing, and I felt a great overview. There is another film on the archive, 'Operations Crossroads' that explains it in double the time than it is explained here, but both actually are equally good.

Starts with conventional look at aircraft, other than fighters and bombers, of World War II, then has some shots of rare craft like the "flying wing". Finally, the Bikini atomic bomb test drop from "Dave's Dream", (they don't tell you it's the same B-29 that nuked Nagasaki). But this is Special Delivery for "science". MILITARY science is of course not specified.
